When the holiday season hits, everyone in town suddenly wants to get something framed, which makes it the worst time of the year to try. Right now it's a little better.
Pearl Paint has an excellent framing shop behind their main store on Canal, and we recommend them. They have done very good work for us at very affordable prices. The downside is that they are not as organized as other stores might be, so they take longer to get things back (4-8 weeks depending on season), and can be slow to get to you if they are busy. Our advice is to frame in the offseason (summer) and go there during weekdays, not weekends.
